At Cranberry Hill Environmental Center, Fuchs' Preserve, Northport

Sea Stars Marine Camp is a unique week-long summer experience for your child. Our instructors use hands-on activities to teach about Long Island's vital coastal habitats. Programs planned include twice weekly bus trips to a nearby beach, where your child will explore our local beach & salt marsh. They will learn about the remarkable animals that live there and enjoy many beach activities to include swimming, seining and beach games.

At the Center, campers will observe and handle live marine animals and freshwater pond-life while learning about marine science and environmental ecology. During guided nature walks through the Preserve, campers will explore our coastal woodlands and freshwater pond. Each day is packed with hands-on activities, outdoor games, exciting arts & crafts and fun facts about our local aquatic habitats.

All sessions run from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
